The situation in Dimapur, Nagaland’s commercial hub, is slowly returning to normalcy following the lynching of a rape accused, with Section 144 CrPC continuing to be in force in the town.

Additional Director of Police, Akito Sema said besides the continuation of section 144 CrPC, the administration has deployed 11 companies of IRB and three companies of CRPF to maintain law and order.

Vehicles were seen plying in depleted numbers and people were seen on the streets.

However, as a preemptive measure, major commercial establishments remained shut, police said.

No person has been arrested yet in relation to the March 5 violence in which the rape accused was dragged naked out of Central jail in Dimapur by a mob to the main town and beaten to death.

Sema said police are under the process of registering cases against those responsible for lynching the rape accused and arson in the town.

“There are sufficient video clippings police can access. So it will not be difficult for us to book the culprits,” he said.

“Section 144 CrPC will continue until the situation improves. We will do everything possible to stop any escalation,” Sema added.
